Verse 256. The Just And The Impartial Judge Best

Whoever judges hastily
does Dhamma not uphold,
a wise one should investigate
truth and untruth both.

Explanation: If for some reason someone were to judge what is right or wrong, arbitrarily, that judgment is not established on righteousness. But, the wise person judges what is right and what is wrong discriminately, without prejudice.
